TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Girindra natti Ghosh, 54/5 Beadon Street, Calcutta, India
Date23 October 1906
DescriptionThinks there must be something wrong about Ghosh's information that this Society possesses a copy of 'Charak Sanghita'. Is quite unaware of such a work being in the library of the Society. The Society had a number of oriental works some years back but they were transferred, he believes, to the Library of the India Office.
